Bio

Gary J. Holliday was born in Miami Beach, Florida. A self-taught artist who started drawing at the age of 4, later enrolling at the Leymone Art Foundation in Tallahassee. He later was accept-ed into an undergraduate fine arts program at Florida State University graduating with a mas-ter’s degree in drawing and sculpture.

Artist Statement:
Art is created by my intuition, which is the driving force behind fantastic imagery.... My inspira-tion comes from African American culture, political and social views. The use of shapes and fig-ures along with references to human anatomy and religious symbolism, shows the complex situ-ation of our human existence and my faith for salvation for mankind. I create scenes in which forms and floating shapes are in grouping situations or engaged in conversation much like soci-ety. The use of maps suggests how far my thoughts may reach and may appear in the world.
